The article offers a tip on reducing the global warming in the world. It is stated that if 100,000 households each installed an eight-foot-diameter wind turbine, the cumulative annual carbondioxide reduction would be 900,000 tons. A chart that offers details on cost, time, effort and impact of this global warming survival tip is also presented.
